Dealer Art Antique Oil Painting Original Artwork Decor Maritime Collectible For Sale
Beautiful signed antique original oil painting I call this "Sage Old Man" that name seemed fitting to me, perhaps he is a salty old sailor This man sure looks like he is wearing his military beret & probably a medal around his neck...I am not sure what country the beret represents!! Perfect addition to any military/naval collections This piece is oil on canvas, stretched over pine I love the rich colors, furrowed brow,sad eyes with red highlights, the Navy style beret, the beard coloring, simply the overall impression of this piece is fantastic Some condition issues consistent with it's age...tears in the paper backing on the frame, small nicks/missing paint spots in the oil paint, small gaps at the frame corners etc....all making for wonderful antique patina This work is signed(see close-up photo)..it reads "M E 62' " There are some letters on the dark band of the beret, however I can't make them out The name&address of the custom framers is on the back(photo) I love the rich colors on the wood frame, including gold(probably old gilt) red, browns This rich looking piece will be a great addition to any fine home, it is certainly will be a conversation pieceall the best, Bryan PS.
